What: THE GODFATHER II Wine Party: Francis Ford Coppola Winery. We'll travel to Sonoma to the legendary Alexander Valley and celebrate this award winning movie director's wines. This year, Wine Enthusiast Magazine honored this winemaker for outstanding achievement in the wine world. The multiple-time Academy Award winner’s professional wine career started with his 1975 purchase of the old Inglenook property, which became his Rubicon Estate winery. In 2006, Coppola moved into Sonoma County and began transforming the old Château Souverain property into Francis Ford Coppola Winery, a popular tourist stop that today includes more than forty wines and his new restaurant, RUSTIC
Note: These pictures are representative of their wide portfolio of wines but are not the selection for our wine party from the winery. We'll post the wines and food pairing soon!

About our events: Denver Wine Meetup/UncorkedDenver.com events are a unique opportunity to socialize with other young/mid professionals and make new friends over at a wine and food pairing, with select wines paired with appetizers, sometimes with the winemaker visiting.
Our events differ from the many "happy hours" in a bar groups around Denver and high priced wine organizations, distributor/festival type events as the events are a wine social with the opportunity to meet a winemaker or wine manager and focus on learning about a winery and/or a varietal. Our events provide members a unique wine and culinary pairing event with the aspect of a social mixer at an affordable price. Although our events are not "singles" events, we try to keep an even split of males, females and couples at our events.
Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker.
